THEATER

This summary catalogue of drawings and prints designed for theater 
is modelled on an earlier catalogue of drawings by identified Italian Archi- 
tects prepared by the Museum's former Curator of Drawings and Prints, 
Dr. Richard Paul Wunder, in whose honor this present catalogue is published. 

Now Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the National Collection of 
Fine Arts, Smithsonian Institution, Dr. Wunder leaves the Cooper Union 
Museum not only with the affection of his colleagues but with the respect of 
all who know the Museum's collection of drawings and prints and to what 
extent it is in his debt. Whatever in this present catalogue represents 
original work is largely due to his own research and, in fact, many of the 
drawings have been published by him elsewhere in one or another context. 

Quick perusal of the catalogue will show the general nature of the 
collection especially related to theater design. Not included is a large body 
of material allied to theater design; architectural fantasies, peep shows, 
landscape designs, and designs for "fetes" which, usually royal or papal in 
character, closely paralleled more strictly theatrical performances. Also 
not included are specifically theater materials not, however, a part of the 
collection of drawings and prints. Among these, the Museum possesses a 
rare 18th-century Italian marionette stage with proscenium arch along with 
marionettes of Commedia dell'Artc characters. Other puppets in the 
Museum's collections include various versions of Punch and Judy, regional 
hand puppets as well as Indonesian Wayang Golek puppets. 



A more detailed examination of the catalogue will show instances of 
absent information, information that may appear doubtful in its accuracy, 
and certain inconsistencies of presentation. In all cases, however, the aim 
has been to offer as much as practicable within the limits of the catalogue's 
scope and the more demanding limits of time. In every phase of preparing 
the catalogue the Museum has had the knowledgable and generously given 
assistance of Priscilla C, Nagle. Without her help there would, in fact, 
be no catalogue. 

Publication of this catalogue coincides with a special exhibition called 
"Theater Design: 1 6th to 20th century Drawings, Prints and Puppets from 
the Museum's Collections", from March 31 through May 15.
